Eduefiki.d, Sept., 1850. Gentlemen :?It would give me pleasure to join you in doing honor to our fellow- I citizen, the lion. James Chesnut, Jr., who > will deserves the compliment you are about j to pay him; and, I regret that my engage- | tnents, pi ice it entirely out of my power to be present with you. The Presidential election, in its results i exercises much influence over the legislation of this country. The principles of the candidates, as usually indicated by the party platforms, or by the party press, or by the candidates themselves, are those supported by the successful partv for the siNiceedlnnr ! * o four years* Hence, il is of consequence to determine wisely the principles nnd candidate to be supported by the South in the approaching election. The question whether she should consent to support a candidate who is not avowedly opposed to the u?u>muu u> oijuanci ouvcrt'iyiuy in I'iC Territories, is ono of serious jmport, and I am graliBed to believe that, the weight of your demonstration will be against supporting any advocate of that heresy so dangerous to Southern Rights. The Kansas Bill of '58, commonly ? known as the English Bill, having been acquiesced in generally by the South, and desiring, as I did from the begining, that there should be no division in the South OD that ouostion. I nlmnM nfnl>oV.U ^ J _ ...ww.v. v WWUIJI UCVUI again have adverted to my vote against it, but for tbe extraordinary course which Benator Toombs has recently thought proper to pursue in reference to that measure and the votes of Gen. Quitman and myself. *TTa ilaama if no/iMtnpr !? *- ' ' * -??? ? ? ..vuvuonij, >1 DCCIU3, lO ClCItiQG his vote ir. favor of the Bill before the. people of Georgia, and in doing so, at Lexington, on the 26th August, used the follow* ing language, as reported the Augusta Dispatch of the 30th August, which language, up to this date, is uncontradicted, no far as I am informed, viz: "He reviewed the Lecompton constitution ?-alluded to tllft vnfjtl nf Onilmtn on/I J3onbara, who bad voted against it. He would as soon draw two names from the Grand Jury box in Ogletborpe country, for political leaders, as to select them. He Ictie'w of no two men living with less qualifloat ion to ioatruct the people. He defended Douglas, and said be would vote for him sooner then for any ma* of the Opposition tfotth or ,South Jn Of course the Eoglish Bill is mean(, as Gen. Quitman And myself both voted for the Senate Bill. It ia difficult to discern the object of this , fling. If he raeaut to contrast himself, with Gen Quitman and myself as political leader^ and instructors o^ibe people, with the view to impress on the mind's of bU' tearers a proper estimate of the valua of- tho En# glisb Bill, it ?raf, to say the least, ? mode > <* I of argument towards a coieinporary of more than questionable delicacy. Towards tlio dead, it will strike all right-minded persons as most indelicate, undignified, and unbecoming bis bigh post. Good taste in debate, however, has never been regarded, I believe, even by his admirers, as tho peculiar forte of the Senator. As to tho forco of tho contrast in his own mind between Quitman aud himself, the Senator's vanity greatly deceives him, if he supposes that many who knew them both ngreo with him. Gen. Quitman always commanded in Congress, and in tho i South, tlie coofidence nnd respect of not only his own parly, but also of liis enemies. Can as much be said of tlie Georgia Scnalor, even as to bis own parly ? Quitman was tbe consistent and eliosen leader of tbc Southern Right party. Does that party ever lake counsel of Mr. Toombs ? Of what party is lie tbc honored leader, that be should disparage the memory of as true a patriot, as honest, consisteut and fearless leader as the South has even had ? The Senator was a member of the House in'50,and opposed the admission of California. Iler constitution, irregularly and without precedent, had been gotten up nnd brought before Congress under military dictation, and her hurried and irregular admission subsequently "imparted validity lo the unauthorized action of a portion of the inhabitants of California, by which an invidious discrimination is made against the property of the fifteen slave-holding States." Speaking in the debate of the rights of the South to an equal participation in all the Territories, the Senator said : "Deprive us of this right, and appropriate this common property to yourselves ; it i* then your government, not mine. Then I am its enemy, and I will then, if I can, bring my children and my constituents to the altar of liberty, and, like Llammilcar, I would swear them to eternal hostility to your foul domination.1' And yet, after the consummation of this great wrong to the South, unliko the Carthagenian, the Senator reversed took to swearing by the compromise measures of '50' of which the California swindle was not the least objectionable, and consistent at least iti this, is nt it still. And, now t jo. he is fast beroininor a tlic advocate of Senator Douglas for the Presidency, who will accept the nomination of ;he Democratic party on the squatter sovereignty platform, or not at all. The Senator's moral and mental structure does not enable him to appreciate the lofty patriotism, the unswerving political integrity, the stern adherence to principle which characterized John Anthony Quitman?a leader. "that was, to this, Hyperion to a satyr." I shall not imitate the Seuator, in vindicating my vote against the English Hill, on llie ground that the Senator docs not command my respect as a leader. But, I will hero assure bim that, his estimate of myself is not higher than mine of him. The Grand Jurors of Oglethorpe, I doubt not, possess the average intelligence of tbeir class elsewhere in our country, though the fionrffiii Siinnfrvt* muof I* 1 ? ^uiuoii piacc iu gillie IOW for political leadership from his nsiDg it as a disparaging standard of tho fitness of Gen. Quitman and myself for that distinction; Some of them I suppose, would represent the country with credit, and would be no ignoble leaders nnd instructors of the people* They would, perhaps, be none the worse that they havo not been so long in Washing ton as himself. Now, the Senator offers the ckinccs of drawing, for our counterparts, the best men in tho box, with the hazard of drawiue tha most indiflf.?w?nt I will be more liberal to him; be may take the box and pick out, if ho can, the name of one more unsafe and less fitted than himself to advise the South in her present need. | > ?

Something on these topics I hive elsewhere said, and may not hero repeat. Some other things, my friends, with your indulgence, I would say; thoughts, memo ! lies which crowd upon me, too vivid to be J represented, too personal almost to be utter ed. On the iTili of July, 1S04, a young man from New Hampshire arrived in Boston all but penniless and all but friendless. lie was twenty-two years of age, and had come to take the first steps in the career of lif?i at the capital of IS'ew England. Three days afler arriving in Boston he presented himself without letters of recommendation, to Mr. Christopher Gore, then just rcturne \ from England afler an official residence of several }*ears and solicited a place in his office ns clerk.

Ilis humble suit was ' granted, lie was fcceived in the office and i had heen there a week before Mr. Gore j learned that his name was Daniel Webster!

At that school, at the ago of ten, I was then a pupil, and there commenced a friendship which lasted, without interruption or chill, while his life lasted, of which, while mine lasts, the grateful recollection will never perish. From that time forward I knew, I honored, I loved him. I saw him at nil seasons and on all occasions ; in the flush of public triumph, in the intimacy of the fireside, in the most unreserved interchange of personal confidence, in health, and in sickness in sorrow and in joy ; when early honors began to wreathe his brow and in after life through most of the important scenes of his public career. 1 saw him on occasions that 6bow the manly strength, and, what is better the manlv J weakness of tbe human heart; and I declare tliis day, in the presence of Heaven and of men, that I never heard from him the expression of a wish unbecoming a good citizen and a patriot?tbo utterance of a word unworthy of a gentleman and a Christian ; that I never knew a more generousspirit, a safer adviser, a warmer friend. Do you ask me if he bad faults ? I answer ho was a man. lie Lad Borne of ibe faults of a lofty spirit, a genial temperament, and a warm and generous nature ; be bad none of the faults of a groveling, mean and malignant nature. He bad especially tbe "last infirmity of a noble mind,n and bad no doubt raised an aspiring eye to tbe bigbost object of political ambition. But be did it in tbe honest pride of a capacity equal to tbe station,'and with a consciousness that he should reflect back tbe honor which it conferred. lie might say, with Burke that "be had no arts but booest artsand if he sought the highest honors of the State be did it by transcendent talent, laborious service, and patriotie devotion to tbe public good. t? 1 ? * aii nu nut given 10 Dim, any more than to the other members of the great triumvirate with whom his name is habitual)? associated, to attain the object of their ambition; but posterity will do them Justice, and begins already to discharge the debt of respect and gratitude.

Two hundred and twenly-nine years ago, this day our beloved city received, from the General Court of llio Colony, the honored name of Boston. On tho long roll of those whom she has welcomed to her nurturing bosom, is there a name which shines witti a brighter lustre than his ? Seventy two years ago, this day, the Constitution of the United States was tendered to the acceptance of the people by George Washington. Who of all the gifted and patriotic of tho land, that have adorned the interval, has done moro to unfold its principles, assert its purity, and to promote its dura! tion. Ilere, then, under the cope of Ileaven ; here, on this lovely eminence; here, beneata the walls of llio Capital of old Massachusetts ; here, within the sight of those fair New England villages; here, in the near vicinity of the craves of thosa who planted the germs of nil this palmy growth here, within the sound of sacred bells, we raise this monument, with loving hearts, to | the Statesman, the Patriot the Fellow-citizen | the Neighbor, the Friend. Long may it : guard the approach to these halls of council; ' long may it look out upon a prosperous j country; and, if days of trial and disaster ! should come, and the arm of flesh should | fail, doubt not that the monumental form would descend from its pedestal to stand in the front rank of the peril, and the bronze lips repeat the cry of tlie living voice?"'Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inaeperable." * Description by Mrs. Eliza Buckministcr Lee, Webster's Private Correspondence, 1, 438. A RUSSIAN LADY. We were now on- board the Sylphyde, proceeding from the Neva to Peterhof. Nothing remained of the clamor that had been, but the low mumbling of a krtot of naval courtiers near the wheel, who, alike indifferent to the raging elements, the pitching boat, or the creature sufferings aiound them, continued their discourse in broken phrases, between lone drawn whiffs of JewcofFs "superlatives," for which privilege they had preferred paying a two-shil ling fare in our steamer to a free passage in a erown-boat, where smoking is prohibited. To somo such weighty consideration we were probably indebted for the company of a lovely woman who sat opposite to us, and whose Madonna-like countenance I had been intently admiring for some time ; foiy thrusting a small, delicately-gloved hand into the pocket of her eashmere morningdress, she pulled out an embroidered case, from whence, leisurely selecting a paperoa, she shut it with a loud snap, and returned it to her pocket, looking round meanwhile as if in search of something, which, in my ignorance, I supposed to be some rough surface, whereon to rub a lucifer; but one of the naval smokers, before alluded to, better acquainted with the nature of the difficulty,, gallantly approached her, and proffered the lighted end of his cigar. The lady rose, their heads drew near, she obtained a light, and gracefully thanked him ; be bowed, and tbey both resumed their seats, she?the beautiful Madonna !?sat there puffing away most manfully, her elbow over the side, and her legs across.

I The great Napoleon, when absent on his campaigns, used to write the most tender love-letters to his wife, Josephine. Here I is one of his short war-notes: "I write I very often to you, my dear love, but very l seldom hear from you. You are a fickle, s ugly, wicked creature. Perfidous! to de- s ceive a poor husband and ardent lover! I Must ho forfeit his rights because he is far < away, burdened with difficulties, cares and | fatigue? Without his Josephine, without < the assurance of her love, what remains for him on earth ? What 0.111 he do ? A thousand loving kisses.?Bonapate." , The next is curiously lender: "I don't love you a bit; on tbe contrary ; I detest | , you. You are an ugly, wicked, stupid < hussy. You never write td me, and you 1 do not love your husband. You know the delight your letters afford me, and yet you I send mo only half a dozen hurried lines. | Pray, madam, what do you with yourself < all day ? What important business is it j that prevents your writing to your fund j lover ? What affection stifles and puts aside the love, the tender and constant love, you promised me ? Who can this new wonder be, this new lover, that absorbs all your time, tyrannizes over your dnys, and prevents you from thinking of your husband ? Take care Joseohine. some fine night, the doors closed, and I'll surprise you. But seriously, I am very uneasy, my dear love, at receiving no news of you ; write me four pages immediately, full of those charming things that fill my heart with tenderness and delight. I hope to embrace you before long, then I shall cover you with a million burning kisses."?Bonaparte. THE LONDON TIMES OFFICE. Mr. Story, son of one of the proprietors of the Rochester Democrat, writes to that paper an account of his visit to the office of the LondoD Times. We copy a portion of his narrative: "One of the most interesting and novel departments of the establishment is that in which the stereotyping process is carried on. You know, perhaps, already, that every 1 number of the Times is printed from stereo type plates, thus saving a great part of the J A -C .1 . wcur auu icar 01 ido typo. ine stereotype plate is taken from thr "form'' in three minutes, by a new process, invented by a Swiss, and known only to him. A thin layer of soft and damp paper mache first recoi?es the impression of the type, and after it has been hardened by the application of beat the melted lead is poured on, which is to form the stereotype plate. Thepaper mache 1 lias the power of resisting the action of the melted lead, and comes out of the fiery trial uninjured, and almost unscorched. I 'The plateg are re-melted every day after the issue of the day is printed from them and the waste of typemetal from day to 1 dny is very Blight. By this power of multi- j plying the number of forms from whi4ch the snme side of the paper can be printed the Times can use three or four presses at 1 once, and thus print its 50,000 copies, on 1 nn emergency, in two hours1 time. The ' Times employs in its establishment some 350 persons. It has eighteen reporters at the Ilouses of Parliament, and for these, as well as tho majority of its compositors, ' the working hours are the night hours, exclusively.

But it lias proved itself a faithful keeper of secrets, and would answer none of my qOestlons. It only remained for me to attempt to surprise it into confession, by pronouncing sundry names one after another. It seemed quite- unmoved by most of these, but at the apparently on. expected mention of one, I thought Ha ribands decidedly fluttered.
